“A terrific experience in a great house short walk to nice beach, Playa Avellanas”
Reviewed 12 February 2020 for a stay in January 2020

As of today, February 12, 2020, I have had 6 weeks in the delightful casita “The Blue Lagoon Surf Beach House.” It has been absolutely stellar . Gabriela and Richard are marvelous hosts, extremely friendly and helpful without being a bit intrusive. The house is well equipped and well maintained. The neighborhood is great and local businesses are friendly too. The beach is awesome. Altogether a wonderful experience at a good price. Between local bus service, generous offers of rides by neighbors, I haven’t even needed a car BOOK IT!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 18 February 2019 for a stay in January 2019

The Blue Lagoon Beach House was just right for our needs. It has everything that you need for daily living. Gabby and Rick, the hosts, make this a 5-star place! They go out of their way to make you feel at home, and although they never imposed on us, they were always there if you had questions or needed help with getting around. The house is just the right size for two or three people, the outdoor patio is comfortable and we spent a lot of time in the hammock. And you can drink the tap water, which is a bonus. Rick's honey is delicious! The gardens make the space feel private and calm. We stayed for a month without a car, and it is doable to not have a car, as there is a bus that runs once a day into Santa Cruz, and there is a small convenience store within a 10 minute walk. The fish truck comes by once a week and there is a fruit/veggie guy that comes by Gregorio's (a restaurant) on Mondays at around noon if you want to buy fresh produce. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk away, and it's the best beach we've ever been to! The lagoon at high tide is perfect for cooling off in. We walked along the beach to Tamarindo a few times - it takes about 2 hours and should be done at low tide - check the internet for when that is. We took a taxi back from Tamarindo which costs $25 US. There are several restaurants here in Playa Avellanas within walking distance. All serve delicious food. Gregorios is a local bar/restaurant that makes great smoothies and Chupas, and has cheap local beer. Much cheaper than Lola's! Overall, if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place to just chill, and you like to walk, this is the place! Thanks so much, Gabby and Rick, for making our first visit to Costa Rica so memorable!
